I have a doubt .
As per the checklist the background /declaration and Additional Family Info which are mandatory , says that it needs to be completed by principal applicant and spouse .
Does it mean that even if my spouse is not included in the application , she has to fill it ??
• Completed by:
o the principal applicant
o spouse or common-law partner
o each dependent child over 18 years of age if accompanying the applicant
That seems complicated. Is she not included in your application or she's not coming with you? If she's not INCLUDED in your application, then you may have the option to declare that you are separated or you are single. If she's just not coming with you, but still you declare her as your spouse, she still has to fill up the forms. Declaring her as a spouse or not will affect if she will to come in Canada in the future or if you want to sponsor her in the future.
